    Rockets need to firmly establish Jalen as the franchise player. Statements like this is doing Jalen no good..

    I’m happy with the distribution tonight. Got a dub, everyone contributed. Youth against youth.

    KPJ is really good but he has lacked a Veteran that can help him stabilize his game. His turnovers are improved he is getting better but he still has a ways to go to in his game management. He is trying to out athlete his opponent to much with iso instead of finding the mis matches first and than using iso as a secondary offense after the initial offense fails. That's just what young teams go thru.

    The org needed a douche coach to fully manipulate who to play, how to play, and above all - willing to tank.

    They found him in Silas. But from this year on, it is about development of this players, and Silas is just too clueless and soft to do so.

    But bottom line, whoever made KPJ believe he is the franchise cornerstone is the one to blame. Watch the home opener and he was the last player introduced... Not JG.

    Ok, I apologize to Kevin for anything about running the point I said about him. He is great talent at things, he does excellent, and he is a kid that looks pretty likable. From now on, Silas gets all the heat

    Silas AND Porter are just placeholders for our rebuild. Neither will be here when we ready to complete. The leadership on and off the court are literally united so with one change the team’s needs will be improved on so many levels. They are holding us back together and that is a wonderful thing for now.

    This is too funny after already benching Sengun

    KPJ is being presented as becoming “the best backcourt in the league” according to him, Jalen, and the organization. I don’t think they want him to be facilitating the whole time but help burden the offensive scoring with Jalen. They probably see Jabari as a elite elite 3&D

    KPJ needs to score. Can’t be in the playoffs with a Jalen who has gone cold or a Jabari or can’t create. KPJ still has a lot of learning to do but his iso & scoring ability will be handy at times

    How many times did we see Harden go cold in the 4th with Gordon as the only other player who could create

    If the organization really didn’t believe in him I’d rather start Tyty and tank for Henderson but as long as Stone is with it I’ll support KPJ

    Bottom line, you guys are Sengun fans angry when he comes off the court. The Rockets need footspeed & athleticism and Sengun doesn't have either. I agree with Silas

    Rockets have enough of athleticism and not enough of good decision making

    All they are doing is pumping his value, so we can trade him tot he lakers. We are in asset collection mode. He's flashy, he sells tickets for the time being.
